Today we are proudly blogging in support of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, or NRSC!
The 2006 mid-term elections present the GOP with a unique opportunity to gain an even stronger majority in the U.S. Senate, closing in on a filibuster-proof majority that will remove the last vestiges of power from a thoroughly unworthy version of the Democratic Party that has become a sad and sorry lapdog for the angry and coarse factions of the far-left, devoid of meaningful ideas and dedicated to nothing more than reflexive negativism and obstructionist tactics.
The seats that are up in this next election cycle are as follows:
AZ - Jon Kyl
IN - Richard Lugar
ME - Olympia Snowe
MS - Trent Lott

As you can see, Republicans have fewer seats to defend again this time around and tend to do better in mid-term elections than Democrats. The Democrats also have more Senators who would tend to be looked upon as vulnerable this cycle. We MUST take advantage of this unique opportunity to put an end to their stonewalling once and for all!
You can help by donating to the NRSC. Your contribution will benefit the GOP's efforts to take stronger control of the U.S. Senate and help put it to work for the American people, rather than leave it vulnerable to continued partisan bickering and unconstitutional filibustering of highly qualified judges who fail to pass the far-left's litmus tests!
And, as always, remember to vote - you CAN make a difference! In light of what we have seen in recent years, we must remember that the only good Senate Democrat is a FORMER Senate Democrat!
